My RainReady℠ Home Assessment Tool

Is your home ready for increased storm events in a time of climate change? My RainReady helps you discover what issues you may have, and how you can address them.

My RainReady is a free, online tool that helps homeowners get ready for rain in a time of climate change. Developed by CNT’s Urban Analytic and RainReady teams, My RainReady offers step-by-step guidance to help evaluate the flooding risks of single family homes and small apartment buildings, and find the best means of reducing the risk of flood damage at your home. After answering a series of guided questions, My RainReady will provide a customized report that suggests a mix of home maintenance and DIY improvements, landscaping and construction options, and flood preparedness actions. My RainReady does not collect or share any information about you or your building.


My RainReady includes additional building data for Cook County, Illinois and community-wide flood risk data and planning recommendations for the Calumet region of Cook County.
